Start keeping a diary. Every day write down things your dog enjoyed and any pain or trouble he had. Then grade the day for him.

After a month, go back and count the good days and the bad days. Then you have to make a decision. The decision is do you think that he is having much of a quality of life. For some of us, it comes down to, is he having more good days than bad days. Is his pain managed, etc.
